new forum format sucks - I don't want all adobe products searched

Having all products display in the searched area and not the specific product (in my case ColdFusion) means my search time to find the answer has increased exponentially with no results. It makes the usefullness of these forums obsolete. This is probably your worst move yet, Adobe - don't take steps backwards.  Even when I go to the Coldfusion forums - it still searches all products. This bites.  .

Adobe Please help your customers use your products by searching the correct product.

Thanks, Wendy

in the new adobe forums, no one can hear you scream.

(iow, you're not alone and they don't seem to be listening).

Google, Yahoo or Bing your search and look for a adobe URL answer. Much quicker then navigating the adobe search.

If you use firefox and greasemonkey, there's a script out there that locks you to searching your current forum...

I don't and was actually thinking of reposting this issue just this morning.

There's an IE7 bookmarklet that does the same. It's very useful.

Yep pretty much the only search useful for adobe products now is one run by an outside search engine. Pathetic. Possibly the #2 or #3 worst problem with this Jivemess.

Well Adobe doesn't care what you think or if you can find what you are looking for.

Temporary patch:

Launch FireFox, install GreaseMonkey from the Tools->Add-ons area and then install my script.

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/53705

Various people have generated hacks to fix forum behavior as best as possible. Search userscripts.org and userstyles.org for "Adobe Forums" to find more.

And before anyone posts up that this isn't a true response from Adobe and that we shouldn't be forced to use Firefox to remake the forums, I totally agree with you! I am just trying to help right now since the decision process on what to do about the forum debacle has obviously seized up tight over at Adobe HQ.

Noel,  Where's the bookmarklet in IE7 that will do that? I had to download to IE7 (or company is still using version 6) and I'm not seeing anything like that.

Thanks for your help - this will be very helpful

I believe he posted it up in the Usability Tweaks thread in this forum.

EDIT: Here it is.
